I really like this one after first couple of listens. Got a really nice uplifting feel
about it. It does have this kinda ongoing piano & strings which are very reminiscent of
something to me - maybe this is where i thought musical score on my first listen.

May I offer an heretical viewpoint?

I almost wish this song didn't have lyrics.

I like the instrumentals the band has done. "Theme from Munro Kelly." "Strangeways to Holcombe Hill." The rhythm track for "High Ideals" is very much along the lines of those. The lyrics really just seem like an afterthought here.

On a different note, how many times can one speak of a song having a bass solo? Even Paul McCartney didn't get bass solos. Smile

I agree, the music at the beginning is beautiful,I feel like I'm walking into an old theatre and waiting for a show to begin when I hear it.

I love this song! It riminds me something by the legendary Philly soul band called Delfonics!
So special!

Yep, this is my favourite track.
The more I listen to it, the more I hear; the fab bass-line, the little drum flourishes and of couse those keyboards!
Awesome.

I have to say this is my favourite song so far. It reminds me of a lazy sunny day in the country looking up at pure blue sky. I think the trumpets really make the song uplifting. Quite dreamy.
